Manhasset Adds Mossman & Miles To Gold Star Honor Roll

Written by Ann Marie Fruhauf: manhasset@antonnew.com Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00
A beautiful, warm sunny day provided the backdrop for the rededication of the Manhasset Gold Star Memorial on Saturday, May 26, at the Mary Jane Davies Green. The family and friends of Navy Lieutenant Harry S. Mossman and Army Captain Edward F. Miles were joined by the members of the American Legion Post 304, elected officials, including Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilwoman Ana Kaplan, and members of the Manhasset community to remember Manhasset’s own hometown heroes and to witness the unveiling of the new bronze plate which now includes Lt. Mossman and Capt. Miles among those Manhasset residents who gave their lives in defense of our country.

After welcome remarks from Commander Mathew Falcone and the Invocation delivered by the Rev. James Only of the Congregational Church, Mr. Daniel Miles, the son of Edward Miles, was invited to speak about his father and the extraordinary life he led.

 

‘Village Bath Club’ Neighbors Stunned At Re-Zoning Outcome

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00

Public hearings underlined everyone would never be on the same page

The May 29 town hall board meeting began in much the same way as the May 8 meeting. Paul Bloom, attorney for the developer of the old Village Bath Club property, addressed the board enumerating the concessions made to the neighboring community to gain their approval to rezone the vacant space behind the Daffy’s /Apple stores at 1900 Northern Boulevard to parking from residential. The Belanich family owns the property; the father has recently passed away and it was said that the sons were interested in selling the parcel, to anyone. Key elements discussed between residents and the developer at both May meetings were the buffer zone with adjacent homeowners, the potential of future expansion of commercial space, enforcement of restrictive covenants, traffic and safety concerns.
 

Redistricting Committee Holds Second Public Meeting

Written by Linda Portney Goldstein: portwashington@antonnews.com Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00

Town residents ignore proceedings

The big story on the evening of Monday, May 28 was how few people were interested enough in the town redistricting process to attend the meeting of the Temporary Committee on Redistricting for the Town of North Hempstead.

At the May 7 meeting of the redistricting committee, the purpose of which was to solicit public comment about the redistricting process, a small but vocal group of residents, including two members of the local chapters of the League of Women Voters, accused the town of failing to properly notify residents of the meeting and a lack of transparency in the proceedings. The committee responded by scheduling a second meeting to solicit public comment and followed with an aggressive campaign to inform voters about the meeting on Monday, May 21. The effort included 65,000 reverse 311 calls, of which approximately 45,000 were answered, and press releases in all local newspapers, Newsday and on the town’s website and television station. In addition, the proceedings were web cast.

Senator Martins greets Mary Regan in Albany at ceremony for her son

Sergeant James John Regan always wanted to be an Army Ranger. Upon graduating from Duke University, the Manhasset resident and Chaminade High School grad decided to forgo a job offer from a prominent financial services company and a scholarship to law school in order to serve his country. While in his fourth tour of duty, Sergeant Regan lost his life in Iraq, but his sacrifice and courage will forever endure.

On Tuesday, May 22, Senator Jack M. Martins had the privilege of inducting Sergeant Regan into the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame. Mary Regan, Sergeant Regan’s mother, traveled to Albany to accept the honor.

 

No Rain On This Memorial Day Parade

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00
The sun beat down brutally on Monday, May 28, as stragglers scurried north on Plandome Road to slip into formation, whether it be with the marching band, Girl or Boy Scouts or a sports team, just in time before the parade began winding its way south to the high school where, after its success as a venue last year, the ceremony would be held.

Pat Kenny, and her daughter Christine Kenny Goettelmann, found a shady spot under the Clearview movie theater marquee, where Pat calculated this was her 35th Manhasset Memorial Day Parade. She observed there were fewer spectators lining the street at the more recent parades, but thoughtfully added that far more children march in the parade, along with their parents, than in those earlier years.

2012 Budget Vote Successful; Focus Already On 2013

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00
The board and administration expressed delight at the May 17 board meeting over the solid support behind the 2012 school budget that passed with a 69.6 percent yes votes. In the eerily quiet weeks prior to the vote, one of the very few letters to the editor on this subject began with the improbable “For the first time ever, the Manhasset Proponents of School Accountability (MPSA) and the Port Washington Educational Assembly (PWEA) are supporting the proposed school budgets in our communities, as both budgets are meeting the new tax cap limits.” Coupled with an uncontested trustee election in which Carlo Prinzo was re-elected and Ann Marie Curd-Fruhauf was elected for the first time to fill the spot vacated by retiring Cindy Cardinal, it was quiet indeed.
 

Development Of ‘Village Bath Club’ Property On May 29 Town Board Agenda

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

Community encouraged to give their opinion to the board

Over the years, the unsightly, denuded Village Bath property has been both ignored, and been in play. Unattractive as it is, it has become part of the familiar landscape and any change is suspect.

The Gate LLC, owner of the 1900 Northern Boulevard commercial retail space that includes Daffy’s and the Apple Store on the corner, had considered purchasing the property, applied for a change of zoning from Residential A to Parking in mid-2011, and withdrew its proposal in the face of unanimous opposition by the neighboring communities.

Fracking: What We Don’t Know May Hurt Us

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 18 May 2012 00:00

Speakers agree an army of New Yorkers is needed to ban fracking

The purpose of the gathering at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Shelter Rock on April 23 was to educate and encourage Long Islanders to take action against hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. And Sam Bernhardt, Long Island organizer of the national organization Food & Water Watch, wasted no time providing an explanation of fracking, saying it is a relatively new procedure for extracting natural gas through the process of pumping water and chemicals into the ground to crack open the rock that contains the natural gas. The process, he added, can contaminate water, produce large amounts of air pollution, cause earthquakes, crumble roads and deplete the water supply. Despite these concerns, Bernhardt indicated, Governor Cuomo and the department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) are drafting regulations to allow fracking in New York. Maybe even sometime this year, if they act expeditiously.
